Rector of the Russian Technological University MIREA Stanislav Kudzh suggests labeling dating 18+ VPN services in Russia. He accepted the letter to Maksut Shadayev, Minister of Previous Development, Communications and Mass Media of the Russian Federation.
Kuj also proposes to require VPN services to disseminate information about the potential threat of data transmission to third parties, marked “Contains security detection attacks.”
According to the rector, these participants of the meeting “significantly reduce the risks of data leakage of Russians on the network, increase the level of literacy and hygiene among users, as well as underage consumers from interacting with destructive and dangerous content.”
The Mintsifra reported that they would be considered by Roskomnadzor.
The creator of the RuMarket app store, Anatoly Smorgonsky, believes that there is no need to add VPN markings.
VPN services are not the first year and have never been labeled similar. This is a question of trust in a potential service, not a problem with VPN as an information product. Just like the question of trust in social networks – you give email, phone, etc. Especially now the whole industry is sitting on a VPN.

The press service of VKontakte said that for the company “it is of fundamental importance that the applications available in the store did not violate the requirements of the law, the user agreement and were safe for users.” [Известия]
